The Martha's Vineyard Commission is updating its Regional Transportation Plan (RTP) for 2020-2040, which identifies issues, goals and options for all major modes of transportation on the Island, and allows Island towns to access state and federal transportation funding.
Please take a few minutes to fill out the MVC's Long-Range Transportation Plan Survey at the link below. A first draft of the plan will be released for public comment on July 1.
After a year+ process, including surveys and numerous Listening Sessions to involve the citizens of Oak Bluffs, the Master Plan Update Committee voted to endorse a third and final draft on March 25, 2019. The Planning Board voted unanimously to ratify it on April 25, 2019.

Oak Bluffs is a cherished place, its southern region being the heart of Martha's Vineyard's three down-island towns, if not the entire Island community. This region, a mixture of public & non-profit services, and residential & commercial land uses faces strong development pressures. Few people are aware of the vast amounts of undeveloped land and the interests of current landowners to repurpose their existing developed parcels.
It is the goal of the Oak Bluffs Planning Board to bring an improved process of visioning and oversight to this critical segment of our town.
We invite you to review the recently adopted report of existing land uses and established regulations. This baseline of planning will serve to inform all future efforts in this segment of town. As defined in this report, for planning purposes, this segment of Oak Bluffs will be referred to as The Edgartown- Vineyard Haven Road Corridor.
